Gender gap in Texas law firms?

Story from Texas: 

....a Texas Lawbook study of 40 of the largest firms in the state shows that a serious gender gap continues to plague most law firms in Texas.

Only a small cadre of law firms have experienced extraordinary success promoting women to partner. A large majority of Texas firms continue to lag.

Nearly half of the law firms in the study (18 of 40) promoted no women or just one woman to partner in the last three years.

The number of women promoted to partner this year was up a modest 5 percent from a decade ago.

The rest of the story here.
